Anyways, about the oil spill. I really don't blame the dude driving the boat. Because, it wasn't his fault. An oil rig doesn't drive around like a boat. It's like a big floating raft that sits above the oil well. There is a pipe coming from the oil well to the rig pumping oil. The rig stores the oil so that the big ships can come and pick it up and carry it off to Shell or whatever. Once they start the pumping of oil, it won't stop till they either flip the switch at the top by the rig or dry up the well. What happened was, there was a fire on the oil rig. The fir burnt up the switch and they didn't have a cutoff at the bottom to stop the flow. So, with the fire and all, the pipe cracked and stuff and now the oils just flowing out. BP (British Petrolium) didn't provide the neccesary safety equipment. The USA didn't check to make they had it. The USA also decided to make it legal for them to drill there in the first place. So, it is certainly not the fault of the poor oil riggers who are out there, in the middle of the ocean, away from their families. Plus, 12 men died in the fire. And anyways, where was that oil going to go? To a car or a bus or an airplane or whatever. And then, it would come out the exaust pipe to float up and ruin our atmosphere. So, why were we drilling in the first place? To get something that ruins our waters and our atmosphere and kills our plants and animals and causes global warming which kills more plants and animals. Just my opinion on this whole thing. I mean, I know we need to drive places but is that more important than our planet?
